I have a whole library of digital images that I got from pcCrafter years ago. While looking for something else, I ran across this owl picture. I printed it up, not knowing quite what I'd do with it until the Sweet Sunday sketch came along. It was a perfect fit.
Isn't he just the cutest? The background paper is from Lost and Found by My Mind's Eye, the basket weave from a DCWV picture stack and the polka dot from who know's where. I have a lot of the "who knows where" paper. I've picked up pieces in a variety of stores and they are not always labeled on the paper.
Sometimes when I am finished with a card I see things I might change if I were to do it again. The polka dot behind the image for example. It blends in too much with the horizontal piece but I didn't want to use the blue as the vertical strip. Ooops, as I previewed this I realized I should have put the polka dot behind the basketweave. That probably would make a big difference. If I can take it apart, I will. I could have used a darker blue circle but it's done now and it's not bad, just not great. And I haven't decided what sentiment will go inside. Get well maybe? He looks like he needs a good rest.
